- The Young Ones: Sick (1984) [Neil Pye]: Hit on the head with a shovel by Rik Mayall; after being buried in the garden, three new Nigels grow out of the ground. (The whole thing turns out to be Rik's dream sequence.) (Played for comic effect.)
- The Young Ones: Summer Holiday (1984) [Neil Pye]: Killed in an explosion (along with Adrian Edmondson, Rik Mayall, and Christopher Ryan) when their bus blows up shortly after going over a cliff, immediately after they survive the crash and exclaim "Whew, that was close!" (Due to the series' comedic nature, it's unclear whether or not this was intended to be fatal; however, since it was the final episode of the series, I'll list it just in case.) (Again, played for comic effect.)
- Blackadder the Third: Nob and Nobility (1987) [Lord Smedley a.k.a. Madame La Guillotine a.k.a. the Scarlet Pimpernel]: Poisoned when Rowan Atkinson gives him some poisoned wine in the jail cell, haven mistaken Nigel for one of the French captors; he dies after explaining the poison's symptoms, unaware that he's also demonstrating the symptoms as he does so. (Played for comic effect.)
- Hogfather (2006; TV movie) [Mr. Sideney]: Slashed to death (off-screen) by the Scissormen after the Tooth Fairy's magic causes his childhood fears to manifest; we only see the Scissormen's shadows on the wall as they close in on him.
